Timeline PhotosBacteria-focused Treatments in Lyme Disease May be Incorrect.
In most Lyme disease treatment philosophies the focus of every treatment revolves around the killing of bacteria and coinfections.
Whether the treatment is conventional antibiotics, botanical antimicrobial supplements, or antimicrobial rife-frequencies all of these treatment focus on the “bugs” as the ultimate cause of dis-ease, and their annihilation the ultimate cure. Is this treatment focus correct?
Clinical research suggests that in the many of the people who experience long-term recovery from chronic Lyme disease (CLD) the bacteria and coinfections played only a secondary role in their recovery.
Addressing infection does play a role, but as you will see it often should not be considered the final answer to restoring the quality of life the person seeks.
The focus of this article is to propose a bio-centric, along with a microbe-centric focus in the treatment of people suffering from what is generally called CLD.
While many doctors and people can point to remissions in individuals, brought about by antibiotic-type treatments, the ultimate role played by these drugs/supplements is over-glamorized, while the correction of the predispositions and post-Lyme damage, as well as the restorative functions of the human body is often downplayed or ignored altogether.
Health restoration is a function of the body, not a function of a drug.
In an illness where all laboratory tests for Lyme disease demonstrate a high, false-negative rate, even in profoundly sick LD cases, the extensive antibiotic treatment and subsequent finding of a negative lab test means very little to validate the effectiveness of the treatment.
In this author’s interviewing of thousands of people treated with long-term, natural, and conventional antibacterial medications, the vast majority of people report that they have nowhere near the quality of life they once enjoyed.
While bringing down the population of offending microbes is important, their complete annihilation is not ultimately what creates the restoration of optimum health.
Following are examples of various doctors who have achieved lasting health restoration in many people previously diagnosed with LD by identifying the primary areas of interference.
It must be understood that optimum health is the point at which the body, mind, and spirit can adapt instantly and correctly to any changes in their internal and external environment.
Loss of this adaptability arises prior to the occurrence of what is known as LD.
Every aspect of the human condition must be explored, identified, and corrected at its source before lasting health can restored.
Latent or recent infection with Lyme bacteria leading to the eventual diagnosis of LD, in each case, is secondary to the underlying interferences from either inherited or acquired disturbances to adaption.
Dr. E. Mark Haacke, Ph.D. is the inventor of MRI-angiography, and is the leading expert on measuring the blood flow dynamics of the neurovascular system. He is the founder of International Society of Neurovascular Disease (www.isnvd.org) Dr. Haacke has research data soon to be published that defines findings associated degenerative neurological conditions such as MS, ALS, Alzheimer’s, and other neurodegenerative diseases that are often associated with LD.
His research reveals disturbances in vascular flow in the veins of the brain and neck, the ultimate correction of which has restored neurological function in people with previously diagnosed with M.S. symptoms and LD. This condition is called Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI).
Essentially, it appears that the bacteria/viruses associated with LD can infect the endothelial lining (walls) of the major veins that drain blood out of the head. The infections cause a narrowing or restriction of the blood flow out of the head, leading to severe pressure and even a reversal in the direction that the blood is flowing.
Remember, the blood in the veins is old, spent, used up blood. Now this blood is pressing through the blood-brain-barrier and often iron from the spent hemoglobin is getting deposited in the surrounding brain tissue.
Any problem inside the head and anywhere in the body can be caused by CCSVI, because the brain is the "central computer" for the body. If your hormones are off, it can be a "computer" problem. If you have pain, it can be a "computer" problem. If you have cognitive problems…can't sleep, have gait problems, numbness, headaches… recurrent or ongoing infection after infection, it can be a computer problem caused by the Lyme-induced CCSVI.
Once the damage to the veins is done, the bacteria can be long gone, but the problems remain, due the CCSVI.
The doctors at the Hansa Center have found many people who have unrelenting, chronic LD, appeared to have had vascular damage, leading to the cascade of autonomic and neurological disregulation, which was causing much of their suffering.
Computerized Regulation Thermodiagnostics (CRT) in combination with other in-house tests, is used by our doctors to pre-screen every patient for the possibility of CCSVI.
Another pioneer of health science is Dr. Osvaldo Font, M.D. in Puerto Rico, who was recently nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his development of Electro-Neuro-Medullar Therapy.
Dr. Font identified an electrical resistance or blockage in the spinal cord of many neurological problems that often are seen in people with LD, which causes a short-circuit in the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
Once this accumulated energy is discharged and the current is restored, the neurological symptoms and pain fall away. It has been reported that Dr. Font’s treatments have facilitated almost 500 people to be able to get out of their wheelchairs, many of whom were previously thought to be suffering from chronic Lyme disease.
There are many other doctors that could be mentioned for demonstrating how what was thought to be completely an infectious disease (LD) is actually a loss of adaption in the body, either from inherited or acquired predispositions, or infection and injury.
Every doctor trained in Biological Medicine is accustomed to seeing transformative restorations of health after correcting everything that is interfering with the body’s own restorative abilities.
The point here is to show that once the diagnosis is made of Lyme disease, 99% of doctors focus their primary efforts toward annihilating the bacteria and coinfections, and all of the other treatments revolve around that primary focus. In chronic Lyme disease especially, it appears that the center of focus must be placed on restoring optimum coherence within the body, with the microbial issues being addressed as a secondary focus.
It is interesting that many people who would have adamantly defended the fact that they are sick because they have Lyme disease, had to agree that in the end the treatment of bacteria played little role in their healing once they were restored to health through the efforts of the doctors of the type presented herein.
Treat the human condition and health will follow. Treat the bugs and more bugs will follow.
